About the Series:
- “Soul of a Nation, the first broadcast network newsmagazine that aims to put Black life in America front and center, will present viewers with a unique window into authentic realities of Black life and dive deeper into this critical moment of racial reckoning. It will travel across the country, unpacking issues critical to Black Americans through intimate storytelling, and bridge the past, present, and future through a variety of voices and experiences from athletes, entertainers, performers, and screenwriters. Each episode will explore a specific theme, including spirituality, Black joy, activism in sports, and the racial reckoning that erupted after George Floyd’s death, and familiar faces – performers, activists, scholars, and clergy – will gather for an entertaining and provocative conversation “in the kitchen” about current events. A special performance featuring some of the nation’s greatest musicians or spoken word artists will close out each show.”
Soul of a Nation premieres Tuesday, March 2 at 10:00 pm ET on ABC. Episodes can be viewed on Hulu the next day.
